BrewDog Meets Fish and Chips
Tucked away on St Stephen Street from the hustle and bustle of Stockbridge, you'll find The Saint.
Housed in a Georgian tenement and owned by Jason Scott and Mike Aikman - the people who brought you Bramble bar and lounge - The Saint has already garnered a number of heavenly reviews just six months after opening its doors.
It's here that'll you'll also find a number of BrewDog beers, some by the bottle, others by draught.
With a diverse and eclectic clientele of city folk, locals and (as owner Jason puts it) “just good people”, this is an inner city haven to enjoy a cold pint of 77, a bottle of Zeitgeist or even Tokyo at its infamous 18.2%.
“BrewDog fits in well with our portfolio,” explains Jason. “We strive to provide people with something a bit different, not just for the sake of it but for the quality. BrewDog fits that remit.”
The Saint are also one of a growing number of bars choosing to pair food with beer, or in this case, transferring BrewDog completely out of the glass and straight onto the plate.
“At The Saint we do our best to support Scottish producers where we can by sourcing our products locally. We are also keen to support sustainability, hence the creation of our beer battered coley using BrewDog's 77 lager.”
Sustainable, BrewDog inspired fish and chips you say? Head down to The Saint for some of the most guilt-free, beer infused grub you'll find around today.

- The Brauhaus in Edinburgh is a personal favourite. Stocks Brewdog and hundreds of others. Chris09.10.2009
- I have been many time at the saint... Nice place, some beautiful beers, nice food and good wine choice.
Other places where I love to enjoy Brewdog in Edinburgh are the Bow Bar, the Blue Blazer, the Cask and Barrel, the Malt Shovel (I go in there just if they have BD) and the Stockbridge Tap. I hope someone else can suggest some other quality places... Ariele Rovati09.10.2009
- None to be had in the Bon Accord in Glasgow either. I believe they occasionally have you on cask but I`ve never seen it. I don`t think they have you in the State Bar either, which would be an obvious outlet. Other places like the Local and Nice n Sleazys would maybe take you on bottle. On and the Pot Still on Hope Street is a great whisky bar that has occasional ales - would be a god place to get in. Lebowskis on Argyle Street is a great pub with friendly staff and an eye for quality. vittorio, therinkery.blogspot.com09.10.2009
- Im all for the local produce and the support of BrewDog. The words Portfolio and Remit, however, make me throw up in my mouth a little.
For Glasgow, Blackfriars still have a nice selection of BrewDog, despite the departure of Prince Cadden.
Sadly, the finest ale bar in Glasgow, The Three Judges, have a rather impoverished bottle selection so not much on the BrewDog there. Gareth Young09.10.2009
- Looks and sounds fantastic. If I were closer I would be there. Open one in Kent please. Mark Lewis08.10.2009
